Feeling Reasonable well at mo!!!

Happy Easter All

Just wanted to write a more positive blog for me any ways.

Been away for 4 days, visiting inlaws in yorkshire. The trip up was mainly in heavy rain and the temp dropped considerably compared to london/essex. I could feel my ra, but surprising I did not give me any problems other than an awareness in my knees and some slight stiffing in my hands.

I was tired the following day and rested up to be expected and on thursday we went for a walk on the Chevine forest with my dog and father law. I did not want to do it initially in case it set of my ra, but I showed willing and under the guise we would all turn back as soon as I started to feel any discomfort. Well I did a 3 mile round trip with out any pain (thought I should not over do it).

Up shot is I have been pain free for at least 5 days now which is very rare and unusual. It's a really nice treat and I thoroughly enjoyed our first trip away since diagnosis and I am really pleased I was able to pace myself.

I've got chores mainly washing and some marking to do over the easter break, which I will make a start later on, but other than that I feel reasonably well and that's after having the viral infection and having to go for confirmatory xrays for a bakers cyst. Just shows how variable the disease it!

Enjoying the temporary respite from the disease

Happy easter all

You to Summer x


Great news, 3 mile walk that's good. This is just the start hopefully u will go from strength to strength .

Happy Easter, Gina.


Well Gina,

that would be an ask; do I dare think it will continue? Privately yes, but I know it won't so just enjoying not hurting for now and the reduction in the use of cocodomols.

Thanks for the easter wish :)


That's really good news. Bet it feels great to be pain free for a while. Hope it lasts for you.



It's lovely traceyanne, I've had the odd day maybe twice in a wk, bur rarely most of a wk, that is very unusual indeed. I hope it lasts too, but if it don't and most probably won't that ra and I that's ok also.

Cheers x


Well done sci,you are remarkable to be able to that. Hope you had a lovely time and happy easter to you and your family. xx


Thanks hun, I should of said I walked and went shopping with the aid of a walking stick.

Can't do any distance now without the cane, otherwise I limp really badly.

Well done Sci - hope you'll build up slowly and then your muscles will be stronger to support the poorly joints. Take care and happy Easter. TTx


that sounds great just what the doctor ordered - just don't do to much

Brilliant - tho' shame weather didn't help out with a bit more sun. Let's hope you've turned the corner and it will keep on getting better and better. Happy easter. Px
